JNPT & Chennai Port register over 60 pc rise


Except New Mangalore Port Trust which posted a decline of 3.84 per cent, all the other Major Ports got off to a solid start in the first month of the current fiscal, with an increase in cargo handling of 29.52 per cent in April 2021 to 61.52 million tonnes (mt) from 47.50 mt a year ago, thereby reversing the fall in traffic seen last year due to the Coronavirus-induced demand compression, according to the Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways. 


Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), India’s leading container handling facility, reported an over 60 per cent rise in volumes to 6.32 mt. Chennai Port Trust grew by 60.18 per cent to 3.91 mt, while Kamarajar Port handled 3.19 mt in April, a growth of 53.53 per cent, as per a report.
